Disrupting Distraction: Can an app save lives?
November 7, 2017 | Boone, NC
It's a story of a tragic car crash, a brilliant idea, and hours of "up-all-night" coding. It's the story of the Mojo app; how a Boston tech start-up is using data, analytics, and outside-the-box thinking to disrupt a serious problem on today's roads: distracted driving.
This interactive dinner explored the role of distraction in today's society and on our roads and how young people can drive social change.
Presented by the Travelers Institute, Independent Insurance Agents of North Carolina, Appalachian State University's Brantley Risk and Insurance Center, NC Vision Zero, Gamma Iota Sigma at Appalachian State, Road to Zero, and the National Safety Council.
